Lucy has been climbing mountains since she could walk. She has a deep love for the outdoors and pushing her physical and mental limits to new heights.
Lucy began her highpointing adventure — climbing to the top of every state’s highest mountain — at the age of seven when she and her family visited Black Mountain in Kentucky.
Looking at the US geological survey marker on top of the mountain, Lucy and her family began to wonder where other state highpoints were located. They spent the next four hours while driving home looking up and reading about state highpoints.
For the next five years, Lucy and her family traveled throughout the United States climbing each state’s highest mountain. As of 2019, she has made it to the top of 49.
Sets a World Record
On July 22, 2016, at the age of 12, Lucy set a world record as the youngest female to climb the lower 48 state highpoints.

Attempting Another World Record
Lucy will return to Denali in June 2020 to once again attempt to reach the summit of one of the most difficult mountains in the world.
Unlike other mountains – including Everest – you don’t have the aid of porters or transportation of gear to ease your climbing of Denali. While climbers on Everest only carry a daypack, on Denali you have to be self-sufficient the entire way. This means carrying a heavy backpack and pulling a sled with a total of 80 pounds of gear in one of the coldest and harshest environments on earth. This makes Denali one of the greatest physical challenges in the world. If Lucy makes it to the top, she will set the world record as the youngest female to climb all 50 state highpoints.
The Seven Summits
Attempting One of the Greatest Mountaineering Challenges
Climbing the Seven Summits, the highest peak of every continent, is one of the greatest mountaineering challenges. Lucy has her sights set on seeing the world from the top.
